What are your general comments?

"If you get a chance go to the 8pm meeting with the 1st years at Reed Hall, you get a chance to meet some first years ask questions and meet your fellow interviewees. The interview day started at 11:30 but there was a housing informational at 10:30 which was pretty informative, at 11:30 we met with the assistant dean, 12ish we had lunch where we had assigned seats with a faculty member and a 3rd year student, a tour from 1-2 and then at 2 you sit down with fourth years and basically socialize and ask questions. They are evaluation you but it's really not stressful at all. The whole day is very social but its nice you get to meet some cool people and learn a lot about hopkins. They pull you out for an interview with a student and a faculty member at various times. My faculty interviewer was from my home town which really surprised me considering I live in a pretty small city and he was very nice and laid back not stressful at all The student interviewer is closed file so they ask a lot of questions that you would normally have in your application so be prepared to talk about all that. It's also very laid back and the students are really nice" -Posted 12/16/2005 | Report Response
